A good dose of people skills

 

Jill works as a move coordinator for the moving division in Antwerp. “I am responsible for the practical side of the moves for diplomats. This means being in very close contact with them at a time when they are under a lot of pressure. After all, moves always involve a certain degree of stress. I try to reassure them as much as I can. A healthy dose of people skills is definitely a bonus in this job!”

“There’s no such thing as a typical work day for a move coordinator,” Jill laughs. “Every day, new situations crop up that demand a solution. From car registration papers that the customer has lost, to reserving warehouse space, to temporarily storing someone’s personal belongings. It’s not a 9-to-5 job. If the phone rings at 5:00 in the afternoon, I am just as happy to answer it as at any other time of day. I can’t imagine leaving my customers in the lurch.”

Green blood

“Gosselin has grown a lot in the last few years and has become much more international. I am very proud to work here, and am not afraid to admit that after eight years, I now have ‘green blood’. What I really like are the flexible working hours, and that you can set your own schedule. And last but not least, there’s a great team spirit here. This makes the work fun, even when it’s really busy. Sometimes, I go have coffee with my co-workers in the afternoon. I also see some of them outside of work.”

The woman behind the co-worker

Jill is 29, and travelling is her hobby. “I love seeing a lot of the world. When I schedule my vacations from work, it’s to go somewhere. I don’t have a favorite destination. I am equally happy to go to Thailand, Tenerife or back to Montreal, where I studied for a year after graduating from high school. I also love to play tennis, and to treat myself to a really good meal.”

It started with a phone call

Many art moving projects involve a great deal of planning, hard work and precise time management. This is even more so when the project involves shipping precious art objects on behalf of Sergio Mattarella, President of Italy, to the residence of the President of the Republic of Armenia, Armen Sarkissian.
